Chief of Elāra's generals. He was slain by Sūranimila (Mhv.xxv.54, 62f). Bhalluka was his nephew (Mhv.xxv.76). He offered a red cloth (rattapata) at the Akasacetiya on Sumanagiri. He was born in hell, but the sight of the fires there recalled to him his offering and he was immediately born in heaven (MA.ii.955; AA.i.375).
